This is a brief film with very little in it, except a boy launching a toy plane with two newly hatched chicks in it. Naturally, the plane crashes. I was wondering why anyone would think this was funny, but then I saw the credits. If I told you what they were, I'd ruin the whole reason to download this film.
I realize the file size may be prohibitive for some of you, and that that alone will dissuade you from downloading any film that isn't five stars. I understand that. But this little video is pretty funny, and if you have nothing else to do, it might be worth your time.
